An Iranian university student, Mostafa Zangooyee, 24, was leaving his home recently when he was arrested by plain-clothes security officers, reports Mohabat News. The security officers contacted his parents informing them of the arrest.

The charges against Mostafa are evangelization and the propagation of the Christian faith on the university campus. Mostafa remains in custody and his whereabouts are unknown.

Recently, a government-managed newspaper in Iran reported that a university professor was fired for propagating Christianity at the university where he taught. The professor at the Free (Azad) University of Iran was fired from his teaching position for openly sharing his Christian faith with his students and coworkers. The newspaper warned its readers about the dangers and rapid growth of Christianity among university students and professors.

Pray for Christian university students and professors in Iran:

  • Pray Mostafa’s family will find out where he is being held and that he will soon be released.
  • Pray Christian university professors and students will be able to boldly share their faith.
  • Pray for those who have been witnessed to by Mostafa and other Christians. Pray God will open their hearts to the gospel.
